Data protection legislation under the spotlight


A privacy campaigner claims government is trying to operate above the law in regulations under a proposed new Data Protection Bill.

New rules on how organisations share data, known as GDPR, are due to come into effect across Europe in May.On the Island, a public consultation is underway to determine exactly how they should be implemented.

But Tristram Llewelyn-Jones has highlighted a clause in the regulations which effectively makes it impossible to prosecute government departments in the event of a data breach.

Policy and Reform Minister Chris Thomas says that is not the case - and that the clause may have been written in accidentally.
